AAA and Double Letter Hockey

A few comments about AAA and double letter hockey at the Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget levels.

The player is expected to integrate the team at his niche and play at the skill, understanding and responsibility levels required. The "Best Player" is expected to make his teammates better. "Watch Me" players are easy to replace. More tolerable as the levels drop.

An elite team at these levels should win at least 30% of the games they play. Otherwise there are issues that are structural or organizational in nature. The further the win % drops the closer the team/organization is to a single A operation.
